Gunmen have beheaded the Ideato North Local Government Chairman in Imo state, Christopher Ohizu, on Monday.
The council boss was kidnapped last Friday, alongside two others, and his houses set ablaze.
The gruesome act was captured in a video that went viral on social media.
The video showed a man they identified to be Ohizu; his hands were tied backwards and kneeling in a forest. He had on just trousers.
One of them said; “Hope, Hope (the state governor) you see this man kneeling here? You know this man?
“The way I am killing this man is the way I am going to kill you. You think hiring soldiers will save you.
“We are not ESN, IPOB; we are a set group of people that see what is happening in the land and we are saying no.
“We must fight to make sure that Biafra is restored. Biafra must be restored. As far as the Eastern region is concerned no election.”
Recall that Christopher Ohizu was reportedly shot on his leg alongside two security dogs and the assailants burnt his house.
